How to fix some mysterious problems.


i have an iphone 4 and before like 2 months i downgraded it from ios 6 to 5.1.1 and jailbroken it now since a new jailbreak will be released i thought about updating it again to ios 6.0.1 or 6.1, but everytime i try to do so i get an error number 3194 and wont allow me to update it to ios 5 or 6.0.1

what do i do to fix it ? i have tried to modify hosts file and it it failed dunno if i did it right

Because you need to use SHSH to get those firmwares as apple no longer sign then. However you are best to just update to 6.1.

I had the same problem. I found by updating iTunes helped and works better on a windows 7.
